Bestowal dialogue

'Leigh Putnam of Trestlebridge has sent word from that embattled town seeking all those who can lighten the spirit even in the darkest of times -- a skill in truly great demand for the unfortunates who live under constant threat of Orc raiding-parties across the North Downs.

'Travel to Trestlebridge and see what you can do to aid in shoring up the defences of the town and lightening the grim mood of its people.'

Background

Even when all hope seems to be gone, a worthy minstrel keeps his friends going despite the danger.

Objective 1

  • Talk to Leigh Putnam

Leigh Putnam is in Trestlebridge, in the North Downs.

Leigh Putnam has sent out a call for minstrels to aid in lightening the mood of the embattled populace of Trestlebridge.

Minstrel Trainer: 'Leigh Putnam is in Trestlebridge and has sent out a call for minstrels to come to the town to lighten the mood of its embattled residents.'
Leigh Putnam: 'A minstrel! I am so glad you have come, <name>, for the mood here in Trestlebridge is bleak -- and with good reason, for we are hard-pressed by the Orcs. Severin does what he can, but true guardians are few and the Orc raiding-parties are many.
'I was about to bring word to a group of refugees who have taken residence in a nearby cave. It is not safe, and I hoped to convince them to return to Trestlebrigde -- I know you will be able to lighten their spirits, <name>, and perhaps convince them that the town is a safer place to stay. I fear that if they stay in that cave, the Orcs will fall upon them in the night, and there will be none to help them survive.
'Let me know when you are ready to go, and we can travel to the cave together.'

Objective 2

Leigh Putnam is in Trestlebridge in the North Downs.

Leigh Putnam is waiting to speak with you about travelling to a nearby cave to bring hope to the refugees hiding within and perhaps convince them to come to the relative safety of Trestlebridge.

Leigh Putnam: 'Are you ready to go? If we can bring hope to these people, your journey here will have been of great worth. I know we can defeat the Orcs, I do...but sometimes it helps to hear someone else say it. They must come to the town, or I fear that cave will be their tomb.

Objective 3

  • Talk to Leigh Putnam

Leigh Putnam is in Trestlebridge.

Leigh Putnam is waiting to speak with you about your recent adventure at the cave of refugees from the North Downs.

Leigh Putnam: 'I must admit to you, <name>, that I thought we were done for when the Orcs attacked -- but somehow we made it through the battle, and I know we owe a great deal to your kind words...even when hope seems lost.
'I thank you, <name>. I am glad you were there, for I fear to think what might have happened to the Beechers and to Lind Newell if you had not been. They have come to Trestlebridge now. As long as the town stands, they will be safer than they were in the cave....as long as the town stands.'
